Victory is mine! The LEGO movie remained number one for the third week in a row, making another $31 million, which propelled me to the top of the predictions chart.
Kevin Costner’s spy thriller 3 Days to Kill opened at number two with $12.3 million. With a modest budget of only $28 million, this film could see some profit.
Pompeii opened at number three with just $10 million. Its budget was ten times that amount, so it’s a safe bet to call this one a stinker. Better luck next time Jon Snow.
The RoboCop reboot fell to number four with just $9.4 million.
The Monuments Men lingered at half-mast in the number five spot with $8 million.
About Last Night slipped to number six with $7.4 million, bringing its domestic total to $38 million.
The other Kevin Hart vehicle, Ride Along, drove into the number seven spot with $4.6 million. This one is a certified hit with a domestic total of $124 million so far.
Frozen stayed fixed at number eight with another $4.3 million. That makes 14 weeks in the top ten. How long will this money making snow storm last?
Endless Love plummeted to the number nine spot, from last week’s number five opening. Its domestic total did manage to cover its budget so we’ll call this one a wash.
Rounding out the top ten was Winter’s Tale. The $60 million fantasy epic was not able to win over audiences, with a domestic total of just $11 million in two weeks.

Next week, Liam Neeson will be battling Jesus for the top spot. Can his high flying thriller Non-Stop beat out Son of God? I’m going to take a risk here and say Jesus will prevail. Tune in to see if I’m right!
Until then, happy movie going.
